The problem isn't the dealers. Its meeting emissions requirements. Getting a diesel to meet emissions requirements is next to impossible in the US.

KIA also has a marketing disadvantage to overcome. Its name is the abbreviation for "Killed In Action". Not the greatest thing to be associated with when selling compact cars.
